Property Description:

The Old Scrabble School House, circa 1888 on National Historic Register/Scrabble Historic District. Absolutely adorable one bedroom, one full bath brick cottage next to a stocked trout stream! This amazing property is fully updated: New kitchen, bathroom, electric, plumbing, HVAC...the works! All interior walls were removed to function as a 1 bedroom studio/efficiency vacation rental. The open floor plan shows off the beautiful refinished wood floors, tall ceilings and new kitchen with granite counters. New Kohler fixtures in kitchen and bath. Brand new refrigerator, stove/range, well pump/filter/pressure tank. New septic in 2016. Not much, if anything, left to be done here. Tons of history and lots of character to say the least. NOTE: Over $32k in vacation rental income in 2022 with the owner reserving 52 days/year for friends and relatives visiting Shepherdstown. This property is located in Berkeley County, but maintains a Shepherdstown 25443 mailing address/zip code. Flood insurance may be required, if financed, as it sits adjacent to the trout stream...Rocky Marsh Run. Showing times may be restricted due to current vacation rental status.
